Owners of Millpond
Colin and Christine own the store. We got into this business because we know how important music and books are in this digital age – and we want to create a place for people to (re)discover the songs and stories that they love.
We have a three-year-old and baby, along with a gaggle of fur babies (some of whom are seen in the store from time to time). We are thrilled to continue to build the Millpond vision of a community-oriented shop for quality affordable books and music in Hespeler.

Our amazing team is knowledgeable with very diverse interests, come down and get to know them!
Classic Rock and Lit
(generally at the store on Thursdays or weekends)Mark is our most recent addition. He is a long-time customer who we managed to snag for the team. Mark has an expansive knowledge of literature, particularly with the classics, but he also enjoys more current fiction. When it comes to music Mark is a big fan of classic rock and is working on rediscovering his favourites while rebuilding his vinyl collection.
Punk, Jazz, etc.
He is a drummer who loves experimental music and the punk scene! He is also passionate about coffee and supporting local. We’re very pleased to have him on board. You can catch him in the store most days during the week, and check out his spins in our highlights.
